Last year, Eminem made an epic comeback at the BET Hip Hop Awards with his freestyle rap bashing Donald Trump. But in the midst of all his accolades, fans often forget that the 45-year-old's greatest achievement is being a father. Eminem's daughter Hailie Scott is now a 22-year-old college student with a boyfriend and what appears to be a pretty normal social life. Scroll down for more details on the brunette beauty!
What does Eminem's daughter Hailie look like now?
Like any young adult, her Instagram account features a smattering of selfies and pics with her BF (though she doesn't post often). Plus, the former Homecoming Queen is one smart cookie. She allegedly graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA. Hailie's currently in college at Michigan State University, and should be on track to finish in May 2018. She previously stated that she planned to pursue a degree in psychology or entrepreneurship — though it's unknown what she's currently studying.
“Eminem is really proud of Hailie, she’s the very best of him and Kim,” a source recently told Hollywood Life. "Hailie is smart, popular, motivated, kind, and really down to earth. Eminem was determined that his daughter would be raised out of the spotlight, as the last thing he wanted was a ‘showbiz kid,’ and he really did a good job — considering the problems that both her mom and dad have had, she’s incredibly well balanced. Hailie is really committed to her studies, she works really hard, and she has a great head on her shoulders."

She was born on Christmas Day in 1995 when her dad was 23 and her mom, Kimberly Anne Scott, was 20. "My daughter comes first no matter what. If there’s important things going on in her life that I need to be there for, then I’ll drop what I’m doing,” Eminem previously said. "Hailie has been my main source of drive, a motivation, especially when she was first born and I didn’t have a career, I didn’t have money, I didn’t have a place to live, so I think that really kicked me in the a-- harder than anything."
He added, “I was like, ‘How I’m gonna raise her?’ and that gave me that motivation. She’s always been the driving force for me to stay busy, stay focused and always been my number one reason for fear or failure. Truth is, she’s all I got in this world. If anything ended tomorrow, she’s all I have.” Hailie once said, "My mother and father are [the most influential people in my life] because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have."
Who is Hailie Scott's boyfriend?
Not much is known about the handsome young man, who's appeared a couple of times on her Instagram. Back in December 2016, she wrote next to a pic of the duo, "Couldn't have asked for a better 21st birthday celebration (or a better guy to have by my side)."
Was Eminem's daughter in his music video?
Hailie played herself in the music video for her dad's 2005 single, "When I'm Gone." Her half-sister Whitney, who's Kim's daughter from another relationship, also appears at the end. Eminem is the 15-year-old's legal guardian, and he also adopted his former sister-in-law Dawn's daughter Alaina, who's now 24.
Eminem famously dedicated a song to his only biological child, aptly titled "Hailie's Song," on his album The Eminem Show — dropping his tough guy persona for the heartfelt single. "It all makes sense when I look into her eyes / And now it don’t feel like the world’s on my shoulders," he raps. "Everyone’s leaning on me / ‘Cause my baby knows that her daddy’s a soldier / Nothing can take her from me." We love that the pair is so close! Scroll down to see more photos of Hailie now.
